    The new Redline will be out in a few weeks and I am sure it will have more complete details. I just wanted to give everyone a little advance notice. Looks like there will be a lot of opportunity for friends to get together. :)

    Debbie, are you sure that is correct for Homestead? I tried to confirm it myself and was not able to do so. Is it also a track event for us?

    Paul, I don't know if those dates are correct or not. I just went to the FCA national page and there was a link with challenge info on it. I don't know what is up as they mention dealers customer rides and the FCA. It is all a big question in my mind as the Florida Region has nothing on this that I have heard about.

    I heard they cancelled a whole bunch of CH races, Homestead being one of them.

    as for the other events. Great. I did not know about Sebring in Sept. Great. Ira, you can also do SAFE and PDC, see my website for details and track dates: www.4Ferrari.com

    BTW Ira,
    I heard you may have some info and copies of records on a silver 355Ch, 1995. Would you still have those by any chance?

    Martin: Bob Segal at Algar got the folks at FoD/FoH to agree to make their service records available to me when I was considering buying that car (assuming we're talking about the silver w/green stripes 355C from Pittsburgh that was at Moroso during Cavallino), but I passed on the car and never bothered to get the records. Bottom line, as best I can recall (and please note that I gave the car only a quick, cursory look and can't personally vouch for the accuracy of what I was told by various folks about this car)- the car received an engine rebuild at the end of each season when Christian Briggs ran it in the Challenge series under their auspices (and more frequent transaxle rebuilds, as he was tough on the machinery), and had the last one a couple of years ago just before it came East. IF it was well looked after since then (and who knows?), it's probably okay, but I'd planned on having a compression test and leak-down test before anteing up any money. Frank Nevotti of FoD/FoH kindly agreed to dig out their records and review the test results with me, but I passed on the car and didn't bother him about it again. Unlike some other 355Cs I considered, this one allegedly wasn't raced in SCCA after the Challenge series, and from what I was able to learn, wasn't too seriously crashed (but did have its share of incidents- Briggs' best buddy owned a body shop and was frequently painting it). Sorry- hope this helps. I recently ditched my numerous e-mails concerning the history of this car, but if you're considering it and want to pick my brain for whatever details I can remember, feel free to call (410-767-6452). BTW, both Briggs and the car's previous owner were very tall and they had to move the pedal box back, so a tall guy like you might find this car a good fit. Also, I believe Dave Siebert told me that the car had a very good race hidtory in the Challenge Series.

    As much as I hate to admit it, Martin, you are right! Rosso Ferrari lists the Challenge schedule for this year and Homestead appears to be off the schedule. Only 5 races for 2004 is that an all time low?
